Deliver on the promise of equal education.

Every day, 250 children are suspended from school. Many are children of color who are deprived of opportunities to experience high-quality early learning at the same rate as white children. Many families don’t feel heard or respected in their child’s schools.  The question is: How can we dismantle inequities and provide nurturing, responsive care and education to all children?

Don’t Look Away: Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms leads early childhood professionals to explore and address issues of bias, equity, low expectations, and family engagement to ensure culturally responsive experiences. Importantly, this book will challenge you to consider your perceptions and thought processes:

  • Identify your own unconscious biases—we all have them!
  • Recognize and minimize bias in the classroom, school, and community
  • Connect with children and their families
  • Help close the opportunity gap for children from marginalized communities

The early years are an especially sensitive period for building lifelong skills. While children are resilient, early childhood professionals must make the road a little smoother, especially for children who may face adversity due to their race, ethnicity, culture, language, or religion. Don’t Look Away: Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms offers strategies, tools, and information to help you create a culturally responsive and equitable learning environment.  With honest examination, thoughtful discussion, attention, and practice, you can make a difference. The children in your care are counting on you.
